Shaq played MMW, had dance-off with Gronk
Shaq is a man of many talents — namely basketball, but also some more musically inclined. Beginning with his rap career, that has spawned four albums and a beef with erstwhile teammate/nemesis Kobe Bryant, to a burgeoning career as a DJ — never forget: Shaq Diesel played Tomorrowland — the Hall of Famer has no intent to slow down.
As is the wont of high-profile basketball players, Shaq took his talents to South Beach for the 2018 edition of Miami Music Week. There he hosted his own event, which was legitimized by the presence of dance music luminaries such as A-Trak, Diplo, and Steve Aoki, among other notables.
The highlight of the evening, however, was New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s dance moves and subsequent dance-off with Shaq.
The fun-loving football player is seemingly entirely recovered from a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in this year’s Super Bowl, and even showed off some of his impressive athleticism by jumping up onto none other than Shaq’s mountainous shoulders.
While the anticipated return of Swedish House Mafia is sure to dominate the retrospectives coming out of Miami, it’s important not to forget that the combination of Shaq, Gronk, and dance music leads to a divine experience.
